Ragi Vegetable Upma with Daliya(Cracked Wheat) or Semolina
You may not like eating just Ragi . To make Ragi taste good is to add ingredients that will flavor it and you will look forward eating it on a regular basis . This is the first time I prepared Upma with Ragi Vermicelli . So I added Daliya along with ragi Vermicelli . My kids may react to the color of Ragi Vermicelli . That is the reason I added daliya or Semolina. Next time I prepared with Semolina( sooji) and Ragi Vermicelli . Both combinations tasted good. We like Upma for any meal. It is One pot meal that we can prepare with every day Ingredients and lot of Vegetables. Add Peanuts and Cashews for little Crunchy taste and Vegetables . So no need for side . For little spicy bite add Green chillies and ginger . Don’t forget to squeeze Juice of Lime at the end. Here is the Simple Recipe with everyday Ingredients.
